What is an NFT?
NFT stands for non-fungible token. Fungible refers to something being easily swapped out or replaced. An example of a fungible asset is something that you can simply exchange with anything else, like a $5 bill for five $1 bills. Bitcoin is another example. One bitcoin isn’t more valuable than another bitcoin.
NFTs are non-fungible, meaning unique. Each NFT is completely unique on the blockchain. Yes, as critics will point out, you can in fact right-click and save an image or take a screenshot, but NFTs have unique features that can’t be copied.
The blockchain proves your ownership and this technology allow for the sale, purchase, collecting, and trading or many digital, and physical assets, not just art.
NFT Art is almost always (so far) referring to digital assets, although we’re seeing many artists including myself use NFTs to sometimes pair digital with physical art.
In some cases, an NFT acts as a certificate of ownership. In other situations, NFTs allow exclusive access, like a ticket or event pass. As it pertains to my digital art collections below, it refers to digital art pieces.
My prediction is that someday (sooner than later), we’ll have a hardware innovation that will be the “ah-ha moment” for the masses.
As we saw with what the iPod did for digital music, soon we’ll all have devices that will allow us to enjoy, display, and decorate with our NFTs in our homes, and offices.
I have been active in the NFT space since March 2021 and since then have had several drops sell out, and have been featured as a prominent NFT Artist at NFT NYC, in Times Square, and in Forbes.
Considering the rarity, and collectibility of these pieces and the historical implications of these being some of my first NFT Artworks, I am confident that they will hold a value that likely could grow.
I welcome you to become part of my growing family of NFT collectors and join me on this amazing journey into the future.
